Why does garnish both add and remove?

If I add a garnish to my food or drink, I’m adding something to it, maybe some parsley or a lemon wedge. But if my wages are garnished, they’re taking being taken away. What’s up with that? Why does to garnish mean both to add something and also to take something away?
